Since the subject has been brought up, what's the point of the thumbnails? I don't see them being used anywhere.

I usually throw up a flyer of the show, or maybe a photo. I tape local to my area stuff so its usually just something to go with the recording when I post it on facebook for people.

Actually, that question was directed for one of the mods or admins here. I also tape local stuff and I like to add pictures to my recordings, but I don't see what the point of the thumbnails are. If they rotated the picture at the top left of the show I'd understand it, but they don't.

well, they load hecka faster that large images so folks appreciate that. but it appears to be true that we are not currently deriving the thumbs. i will pass this info over to an engineer.

"they load hecka faster that large images so folks appreciate that."

Load where? At the top left of a show's page? If so, wouldn't it be better to just have a thumb of the first picture? When I saw the thumbnails added I assumed that there was going to be a site redesign where they all displayed down the left side of a show's page or rotate at the top left or something. Personally, I always pick a picture specifically for the top left pic and resize it before uploading everything. I'm guessing that other people don't do that and that's the reason for the thumbs, but that's just a guess.

There are other collections, like text, that rotate through all the thumbnails for an item. Would be pretty cool if the LMA did that. See http://archive.org/details/goodytwoshoes00newyiala for an example.

Also, bear in mind that there are very few functions added to the site that only apply to one collection. Just because it exists doesn't mean it was designed especially for the LMA.

Thanks for the answer! It's easy to assume that everything's all about the LMA here, but that's just a small part of this place.
